'Know therefore that the Lord thy God, He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a THOUSAND generations'. Deuteronomy 7;9 (go on admit it, doesn't that feel so good to know). God is in control - just believe it for it is true.
Lord, I was angry to hear of the suffering death of Clifford Clarke. A dangerous dog was wandering without its owners and savaged this 79 year old man where he died in agony. Comfort his loved ones. Convict the politicians to get the above Act amended under Your instruction as it has not fully protected us as it should have. Please ensure that dangerous gaps in laws are flagged up sooner rather than later. Thank You. Amen.
I was so sorry to hear of the unfortunate death when Sarah was killed by a tiger. Sarah was an animal lover and family and friends spoke so nicely of her saying things like 'she was chatty, always smiling and had a zest for life and was loyal to her animals'. Comfort to her family, friends and devoted partner, David.
God, I thank You that Sarah and people like her care and protect our animals here. I was vexed to hear recently that tigers and elephants are being slaughtered and some to near extinction because of man's desire to use their tusk as an ornament/medicinal or make the tiger's hide into a rug. How this grieves You, Lord for You gave us these animals which are not meant for slaughter as they are not meant for eating. Thank You that You have given us animals in the sky, sea and air to kill to eat but others to enjoy as pets or to enjoy at zoos or safaris in their homes you designed for them. You want animals cared for and protected and left to the purpose You intended for them. We need these mighty animals around Lord for our children and their children and want animals that are not for food nor endangering anyone to be left alive.Amen.
We all know that there are many companies like Google who allow us to search the web. But, Google are one of the big boys and like all others, reap large profits but they must also keep in mind that they have therefore vast responsiblities.
One of which is to do the honourable thing. One thing they should be doing is paying taxes. What shocks me is that this avoidance of coughing up is legal? It is legal? Government spokesperson PLEASE DO NOT SAY 'THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE'. Because WE already know this you know - we are waiting on action. Yours!!! What can a member of the public do? We, the public, are waiting on members of PARLIAMENT actually doing something to help stop this disgusting trend of porn freely flowing on line.If Google have saved themselves a multi-million pound fortune, why has it not been invested in meeting the needs of their (so far) faithful customers?
They should just remember that another company is just a phone call or click away from them. They are far from the only search engine provider. They are big but are not a monopoly.
The newspapers report on what we already know - that the vast majority (monopoly) of parents according to The National Association of Headteachers, want pornographic material blocked. Google responded by saying it us up to parents to monitor their childrens' web activities to keep them safe from disturbing materials/people. Do they mean get a chair and sit at their side? This is like government ministers commenting on THEIR own departments criticising THEIR OWN departments with comments such as 'it is unacceptable' and 'changes need to be made' But they are saying these things to us the public when THEY are getting well paid to be in charge. In other words, Google and Co get your act together and don't palm us off with the knowledge that complete and uncomplicated blockages of pornographic and disturbing images is coming in the future only available on new computers. So, they want us to spend more to see less vile stuff coming through for our kids, young people and peadophiles to watch. Profit or porn, which is your master Google and Co? Not just you though - tv, film and music industries ARE RESPONSIBLE TOO for this mass media decline in standards, values, decency and for putting out material that is shaping children, young adults and also adults into developing a depressing view of the world when it is not.
Research after research findings have identififed internet porn as adjusting attitudes and police too (listen please to the experts dealing with the resulting crimes) warn attirubutes to disrepect of women, enticement to rape and paedophile playing ground. Just because porn is on-line or or the telly or in films, DOES NOT make it normal or right or acceptable because they are not. This growing trend of people just accepting the sordid and seedy sex trade previously only available in hard core porn mags on top shelves, kept on the streets in brothels, in designated strippers clubs, in under the counter porn films IS NOW seemingly above the counter, above board and is now available to kids! It is not routine nor is it just the way things are or just a change in our values or part of the 'modern' world. It is wrong. It is corrupting. It has gone far enough. We all know it has gone too far and we want the tide to turn back now.
For children and young people to have been exposed to this is a shameful charge from me and many others towards the source of the seediness. Google & Co stop this negligence and start monitoring what you are showing on your screens. I do not want any child including my own being influenced by this stuff and for their young and forming minds thinking that what they are seeing reflects the world they are growing up in. Because the world around us is desperate to live with increasing values again and we are working for this so why aren't the media? They seem to be going against our tide of togetherness. Adults can switch off or switch over but the kids are enticed in, not realising what they are watching is opening up a potential very dark world and mind to them.
Google - two slaps on the wrist then - not paying your company's taxes and for your dismissive comments in the press for putting the blame and responsibility onto parents for the porn etc you are allowing on your screens. You get well paid by just about every household so surely you can afford to pay back some duty of care. Because you are one company, Google, who is held account for letting down our young people and us parents. God, please, please help us parents feel safe that what our children are watching is safe. Thank You for Your alerts about this media trade and telling us about the damage it has caused because we want it to stop now. We want good relationships, healthy relationships and for the media and internet providers to take responsiblity that they are influencing and impacting the minds of OUR CHILDREN in ways in which we do not want. We want Your wise ways, Lord, but need Your help in targeting and tackling this culture of profiteering by any means necessary that has emerged that we desperately want to stop. Thank you that Your will, will be done. Amen.
The two men possessed by satan in Woolwich who murdered a 20 year old man. They hoped to be shot dead by police marksmen/women but their martyrdom has been robbed from them. Why? Because, a spokesman for the people who believe in Allah denounced them saying they deplore their actions and that they DO NOT represent the peace seeking worshippers in their worldwide community. Their vicious actions were without honour or purpose and anything whotsoever holy relating to ANY religion other than satansim. I thank, God that 'extremists' are few and far between and that we will NOT give way to fear of them.
They claimed that attacking this man was justified for the atrocities they stand? This man was picked at random, they did not even KNOW know what, if any, religion was within him so it was an act of wickedness and evil. Cold blooded and hard hearted evil. They will live now for the rest of their lives in disgrace being forced to live knowing that are no martyr figures for ANY Muslim - just servants of satan. They have just signed their eternal death warrants before MY God and will be sent to blackest darkness for their crime of brutal murder.
Lord, God, all of our thoughts and prayers and reactions, including the Muslim community, are WITH and FOR this young innocent man who has died at the hands of these two wicked men. We pray now for his family and friends. We pray now for all those who WITNESSED this mindless act. I thank You, Lord that christians boldy and bravely went to him to pray for him in his dying moments and I commit him to Your care now. I thank You God that You are a GOD OF JUSTICE and that YOU will repay their wickedness with an eye for an eye (their very own words, so prophecy), an eternal life of tormented suffering for what they have done against You. They are abominations in Your sight and will live in prison in disgrace and shame because they have been used by satan and Muslim peoples detach from them and what they have done. Amen.
Section has started. This is under Prayer on the menu. If you have a request that you would like to me to add, then please do let me know. If you prefer it to be without names, then that is fine. God knows who you are and where you are and will respond to your needs. Please also read over the requests for others listsimply saying Lord before and Amen after and your prayer has then been added in support. Thank you so much.
A victory has resulted, thanks be to God, in that the Kirk have voted in favour of allowing ministers to serve and teach for God whose sexuality is now no longer the focus. This is how it should be.
A victory too for couples who WANT to marry one another in God's house where the legislation is now in-situ. Well done for those involved who gave the right to marry for the reason of Godly LOVE in a church. This is how it should be.
God, I thank You for these long awaited victories which abound in sense and love in which You advocate. I thank You for the courage of ministers involved who have refused to allow their sexuality to prevent them serving You and SAVING others. Thank You for the couples who now know they ARE approved by God to marry and are absolutely most welcome in His house. Welcome into God's house and family and I am sorry that it has taken so long for the processes to come to this conclusion and for the discrimination that you have faced. It is now over. Thank God that we are driven by love and acceptance because He is God of both and has shown these to all of us. Many times over. Praise God for His Grace shown to each and every one of us. Amen.
Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray with sincere sadness for the lives lost in Oklahoma City. For the children who died, please comfort their parents and families. For the children alive, thank God, but who were involved and witnessed the effects of this freak weather storm. This tornado I thank You, God claimed less lives than previously known in the region. But, the shared sadness we feel at the boys and girls who are gone from here but are now with You. They will be re-united with their parents we know that and it is a blessed re-union ahead. I am sorry too for the animals who were killed. For the homes and businesses destroyed. May You, God bring comfort and resources to reb-uild lives and homes. My hope is that there will be no more tornados in the area. Bless them in Your peace and protect them, Lord. Our hearts go out to them and for their loss. Amen.
I have just signed the petition on line for Release International who campaign for persecuted Christians in the world. Persecutors take note - you cannot and will not stop Christianity because you cannot and will not stop Christ. His followers are growing daily into the majority and persecutors daily into the minority. Stop tormenting Christ's family. Please God, stop them. Please God help those suffering now because of them. Amen.
The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. He redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion
